ICO The complainant made a request to the London Borough of Lambeth Council for the trial bundle and case file with regards to legal proceedings concerning a residential property within the borough. The Commissioner finds that the request should have been considered under the Environmental Information Regulations (EIR). The Commissioner has investigated the complaint and finds that regulation 12(5)(b) was engaged (apart from three documents) and the public interest in maintaining the exception outweighed the public interest in disclosure. The Commissioner requires the Council to disclose three documents.
